The Herding Group, created in 1983, is the newest AKC classification; its members were formerly members of the Working Group. Dogs in this breed group have the ability to control the movement of other animals. For example, the Corgi, perhaps only one foot tall at the shoulders, can drive a herd of cows many times its size to pasture by leaping and nipping at their heels.

The vast majority of Herding dogs are household pets and never cross paths with a farm animal. Nevertheless, pure instinct prompts many of these dogs to gently herd their owners, especially the children of the family. In general, these intelligent dogs make great companions and are easily trained. AKC
